Nosing: Orange Vanilla Sherry Fig Honey

Taste: Sherry Peat Smoke Leather Cherry

Finish: a very subtle Peat Smoke , not-too-sweet Caramel , Walnut

Comment: A surprising transition from dominant sherry & fruit on the nose, to a subtle bitterness in its finish.

A very approachable, enjoyable whisky for many levels of of palate sophistication - disentangling the fruit & sweet complexity presents a particularly satisfying challenge.

Nosing: Oak Honey Peach Sherry Malt Peat Smoke

Taste: Plum Berries Spices Sweet Oak Salt Dark Chocolate

Finish: Long

Comment: Strong old oak notes arrive on the nose first, coupled with warm stone fruits and honey. A mild smokey overtone can be found. A warm burst of spices and oak set the base for heather flowers and honey to shine before a dry, bitter dark chocolate finish. There is a minor sherry note found though citrus and stone fruits hold a constant sweetness. A great all rounder dram!
